TUESDAY. Today seems like a great day to check out some free tunes. CofC’s students will perform their Charleston Music Club Recital at Franke at Seaside. Eric Penrod plays at the Loggerhead’s Beach Grill, Emily Painter of Junkman’s Choir and Honky Tonk Angels will be at the Tattoed Moose and Kevin Church performs at the Smoky Oak Taproom.

WEDNESDAY. Got a thing for the civil war? It’s a part of you history (you do live in the South you know). Grahame Long will discuss Confederate uniforms in The Charleston Museum’s Collection and their role in the war. Last week The Fair Housing Workshop discussed the Fair Housing Act in Spanish. This Wednesday, English speakers can head to the Main Library to participate in the lecture.

THURSDAY. Weather.com predicts high 60s on Thursday so don’t spend the day cooped up inside. Head to Sea Kayak Carolina’s Seashells and Beachcombing in South Carolina for informational fun and a few surprises. Or head to Palmetto Islands County Park’s Park Center Dedication to honor E. Donald Pounder, CCPRC’s chairman emeritus. Round out the evening with a book release party celebrating Herb Frazier’s Behind God's Back: Gullah Memories Cainhoy, Wando, Huger, Daniel Island, St. Thomas Island, South Carolina.

FRIDAY. Artist Erin Eckman opens her Soft as Nails showcase while the Visiting Writers Series hosts a Q&A session with Jaimy Gordon about her 2010 National Book Award winning novel, Lord of Misrule.

SATURDAY. No plans for the weekend yet? We’ve got too many options to choose from, all fun, all free. If you and your pup missed last weekend’s SEWE (what a shame) you’ve got another chance for some canine fun with Family Doggie Days. Can’t get enough Gullah? This week’s Gullah Heritage will feature Ann Caldwell and the Magnolia Singers, Jeannette Lee, and Minerva T. King. Or take the kids over to Waldenbooks to get Gia Lee’s picture book The Clever Cat signed. For more family fun, head to Recycled Art-Themed Community Day at the Gibbes Museum and encourage some environmental-friendly creative play. Help your sisters out and donate to Nu Alpha Omega of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s Women’s Suit Donation Drive.

SUNDAY. If you’re dying to see what the big name actors wear to the Oscars, Cinebarre is where you want to be this Sunday. See the best and worst dressed amplified at the Oscars on the Big Screen. If you would rather be out and about, check out the live entertainment, games, and more at Autism Benefit and Bridge Run.
